We went to YingYing last week with friends after our Divisoria bonding. We were so excited to eat there since the reviews are good and they say its an authentic chinese resto in Binondo. So the first thing I've noticed when we entered the vicinity is that it is dirty. The floor is so sticky and there are used tissues thrown in the staircase. The place is far different from the pictures they are showing in their fb page. Second, its a little bit pricey considering the taste of the food. I'm not impressed at all. The fried rice, beef with brocolli and oyster omelet are average. The fish fillet is a little bit salty, the sweet and sour pork is hard and tasted like a ketsup was poured on it and lastly the egg soup is a complete failure. The only good thing I had was the mango shake because it comes in a big serving. Overall, I don't think I'm coming back given there are so many other good rrestaurant around.

The Ying Ying Teahouse is a taste of authentic chinese food in the heart of Tondo, Manila.
Dimsum like Hakaw, Siomai, Spareribs, and Sharkfin are tasty in combination of their good fried rice! Dimsum for Php75.00/order usually in 4 pcs, Fried rice good for 4 people only Php120/bowl. Delicious, tasty authentic food and affordable price
We had a nice chinese authentic food for less than Php 850.

Ambience:
Stairway to the second floor was a short workout. Spaces were tight but the entire place looked big. It was packed the entire night! Big plus goes to their business hours!

Food:
Hakao: very so-so

Kuchai: typical healthy vegetables

Lemon Chicken: unimpressive, hard texture

Mango Shake: not the best, but nice because it was cold

Soy Chicken: best part of meal; meat was tender.

Vegetable Dumpling: second good choice; not the freshest, yet still good

Xiao Long Bao: good but it had no soup inside.

Service:
They need to cook most of their food better, especially the hard Lemon Chicken and brothless Xiao Long Bao.

Busy place where locals go for huge & tasty siopao asado, lechon kawali & noodles, dimsum was just ok. Service was quick once you get the server's attention, which was not easy at first. Definitely not fancy on either floor but toilet seemed decent, toilet paper was provided (a bonus) and the sink outside the toilet was clean. Prices were reasonable, I can see why it is a popular place for dine in & take out and undoubtedly a good cultural experience in Chinatown.

Disgusting place to eat with your family. Decieving photos uploaded by this restaurant. Staff are uncourteous and zero hygiene. Very dirty place!!! Had to call staff many times to get their attention.
